Nathan Adrian raffle via EveandCandace to benefit Right to Play

If you’re a fan of swimming, i.e. the U.S. Men’s Olympic team, and are active on social media then there’s no doubt you know about EveandCandace. You can find them on Twitter @EveandCandace, and YouTube.

The pair are die-hard swim fans and trace their admiration and adoration to Bremerton’s Nathan Adrian to pre-Olympic gold in London.

The New Yorkers aren’t just in it to gain autographs and pictures of their favorite swimmers. They have a heart.

Eve and Candace are holding a raffle, known as the Collective Boyfriend Prize Pack, where all proceeds will go toward the Right to Play organization. According to their website, RTP uses sport and play to educate and empower children and youth to overcome the effects of poverty, conflict, and disease in disadvantaged communities. Nathan is an athlete ambassador.

Eve and Candace tweeted back to me their reasons for the raffle:

“Nathan has been very generous to us with his time this year and we have been wanting to pay it forward to our followers. We chose RTP as he is an athlete ambassador. We were also very impressed with his attitude and sportsmanship at worlds and want to honor that and also just because it’s Nathan, he’s one of our favorites.”

The raffle includes a signed 8×10 photo still of Nathan from The Opaque shoot; a signed 8×10 photo still of Nathan (outtake) from the “Tarp Race” Speedo photo shoot; signed white Speedo swim cap from Nathan’s personal stash; 2014 Speedo Performance catalog that features Nathan and other Speedo cthletes including Ryan Lochte, Cullen Jones and Jessica Hardy and two Speedo noisemakers from 2013 Nationals.
There are also three runner-up prizes.

The raffle is open until Aug. 30.
